Default loud air noise

I drive over 500 miles a week between Houston, San Antonio, and Austin the past few days my passanger door has been letting air flow into the cab not enough to feel but if you grab the black window seal from inside and pull it in, it stops just wondering if any of you guys out there have had this problem and of so how did you go about fixing it I cleaned out the cab vents thinking they had dirt in them and that was wrong and now I'm thinking the door seals need to be relaced?

might not have been you, but my wife (typical) locked her keys in the 300c, and the cops so kindly unlocked the door using a inflatable wedge in the door. ever since then, she has the same loud noise at highway speeds. its either the seal, or the door is slightly 'bent'

04s have a problem with door seals or I should say the design of the door to seal. If you look at the corner by the side mirror you should see where the door from opening and closeing tears up the seal. I had a set replaced by the dealer in the first year I had my truck. They did adjust the door as much as they could but the corner of the door still rubs the seal and now I'm ready to put on my 2nd set of seals.

When this starts to happen it's usually because the door seals have dried out, or cracked and flattened; causing a wind leak. That you pulled on it and it stopped tells me that your seals need to be replaced.
